SCAC-endorsed programs provide unique services that are tailored to meet the needs of county government.
Participation in programs is optional, and each county must register/sign a service agreement with the designated provider in order to take advantage of their services.
Internet Auction of Surplus Equipment — GovDeals
SCAC participates in a program for the internet auction of surplus equipment through GovDeals.com. GovDeals provides a platform for county and local governments to sell surplus equipment/assets and confiscated assets via online auction.
Since the program's inception in early 2004, assets generating $25 million have been sold by South Carolina counties through GovDeals. The primary benefit provided by GovDeals is increased revenue from surplus equipment and assets—most clients claim 20-50 percent more revenue from assets and equipment than they had ever received via local public auction. Added benefits are reduced asset depreciation and reduced costs for storage and transportation, because GovDeals allows governments to sell equipment and assets immediately without providing long-term storage in anticipation of a local auction.

The National Association of Counties (NACo) Prescription Discount Program offers significant savings for uninsured and underinsured county residents. The program is available without charge to NACo member counties and their residents.
NACo Prescription Discount Cards are accepted by more than 57,000 pharmacies nationwide and provide savings from 13-35 percent for purchases at a local pharmacy and up to 50 percent for mail order purchases. Citizens do not have to complete enrollment forms, and counties are not required to maintain a database of card distribution. The cards can be distributed with a brochure and used immediately by those who need them.
